"Death Wish" coffee recalled over potentially fatal toxin

(KTAB/KRBC) - Death Wish Coffee Company is recalling certain cold brew cans because they could be contaminated with the potentially fatal toxin botulin.

All 11-ounce Death Wish Nitro Cold Brew cans are subjected to this recall. The current processing system could have caused the contamination.  

A press release from the Food and Drug Administration states "botulism, a potentially fatal form of food poisoning, can cause the following symptoms: general weakness, dizziness, double-vision and trouble with speaking or swallowing. Difficulty in breathing, weakness of other muscles, abdominal distention and constipation may also be common symptoms. People experiencing these problems should seek immediate medical attention."    

“Our customers’ safety is of paramount importance and Death Wish Coffee is taking this significant, proactive step to ensure that the highest quality, safest, and of course, strongest Coffee products we produce are of industry-exceeding standards – thus we are taking this measure of recalling all Death Wish Nitro cans from shelves,” founder/owner of Death Wish Coffee Co., Mike Brown says. “We have also gone a step further, to make sure that everyone who purchased the product on deathwishcoffee.com will receive a full refund within 60 days.
